The foundation of any medical assessment is a thorough, organized patient assessment. Watch NOLS Wilderness Medicine Institute Instructors in action as they model this process. All WMI courses build on this foundational skill preparing you to respond in a wilderness environment.

Epinephrine Training

Understanding how to use epinephrine in the treatment of anaphylactic reactions due to insect bites or food allergies can be an immediate life-saving measure. Under the NJ Higher Education Epinephrine Emergency Treatment Act colleges in New Jersey are permitted to train students and others to provide epinephrine injections in the event of a life-threatening emergency. All OA Leaders are required to complete this training.
